Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 7.17.08

.This Week's Calendar | Ongoing Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

While it doesn’t have the marquee-shattering lustre of last year’s headlining act (hello, Pink Martini!), this summer’s da Vinci Days is still a good reason to spend a weekend lolling about the quaint college town of Corvallis. Not that you’ll be lolling much, as there’s enough to do each day to keep you busy with science, art and technology. Our fave is the Kinetic Sculpture Race: Where else will you see a people-powered vehicle in the shape of a human brain climb a sand dune, plow through a muddy bog and then float down the Willamette? To pull all that off without tipping, toppling or falling to pieces takes some brains. Also worth checking out is the film and video festival, an electric car race (pictured), robotics exhibition, poetry slam and a late-night stargazing party (with high-powered telescopes). If you’re just in town for the music, you can catch Cajun/zydeco jazz masters BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet on Friday and the Afro-funk reggae outfit Nikhil Korula Band on Saturday. See Corvallis listings.

Unless you’re a brooding anarchist, it’s a good week to be living in the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene. On Friday, all you Sam Bond’s-patronizing, Last Friday art walkers get to let loose at the Whiteaker Neighborhood River Festival, the annual celebration of hot temps, tricked-out bikes and the cool, refreshing Willamette River. Join the bike parade or drumming circle, test out a river kayak or just run real fast and dive onto Oregon’s reportedly largest slip-n-slide. WNRF action centers around the River House on North Adams Street, but don’t forget to set your cannabis-adoring heart aflutter at the Emerald Empire HempFest, starting Friday at 4:20 pm (niiiiice!) and continuing through Sunday. Two of the “most prominent cannabis reform activists in the nation” — Eddy Lepp (pictured) and Jack Herer — will speak at the event taking place at Washington-Jefferson Underbridge Park, complete with hemp vendors, music, food, calls for an end to cannabis prohibition and more. Want to help out? HempFest organizers are in urgent need of people with pickup trucks, orange construction fencing, bamboo, chest freezers and refrigerators. Call 517-0957. But don’t let your Friday night end without a visit to Sladden Park at 9 pm for the outdoor screening of the camp classic Labyrinth. Dance, magic, dance! See Friday Calendar..

And it’s also a great time to be a Cottage Grove resident, apparently. Not only is the annual ode to CG’s past glory as a mining boomtown heralded at the Bohemia Mining Days series of events Thursday through Sunday, but you can head on up to the top of Cougar Mountain (outside of nearby Saginaw) for the Tayberry Jam Friday through Sunday. The jam’s subhead is “Reggae on the Mountain,” but wethinks that’s just to bring in the reggae groupies. In fact, with music by Eleven Eyes, Lafa Taylor (pictured), Bad Mitten Orchestre and Bazil Rathbone, you’ll get doses of funk, hip hop, folkgrass and Celtic, respectively. But if you like reggae, there’s a lot of that, too. See Calendar.
